Maria (10121) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has sweetness, notes of malt and light citrus and apple. The flavour has sweetness, a light citrussy bitterness, notes of malt, alcohol (quite a bit) and light hints of coriander and yeast. IMO the alcohol should be more subdued, and that makes the overall impression somewhat unbalanced.

Draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen. Hazy golden color, white head. Fruity yeasty aroma with grape fruit notes. Fruity citrus flavor, bready, yeasty and with a somewhat dry hoppy finish.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Light orange color, hazy. Hoparoma, somewhat dusty with vanilla. Sweetish, very hoppy flavor, almost creamy with vanilla. Great quality beer, not as deep and complex as Contreras Mars, but with a very fine taste. Tap, Café de Engel Oldenzaal. Malty aroma. Malty sweet buttery flavor, with loads of mango and peach. Lemon and vanilla. Hopbitterness comes up and persists in the aftertaste. Lovely!
